ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2 has been out for a month for Microsoft® Windows™ gamers. A week ago, ANet released a Mac client, currently in public beta (the client, not the game), saying that:
Bringing Guild Wars 2 to the Mac is huge for us, because it introduces the game to an entire group of players who are often ignored by game developers.
Which I do not agree. Mac gamers are not the ones
often ignored by game developers, it’s Linux gamers. I’m sure you can name a couple of games with official Mac client and support from game developers and/or publishers, even if you’re not a Mac user. But you will hardly find any official GNU/Linux client and support for these games.
That is the reason why Linux gamers are very used to using WINE (it means: WINE Is Not an Emulator - contrary to what the mass public tells you). We find ways and we work together to make Windows-based and/or/both Mac-based games run in Linux.
So for Guild Wars 2, here is a step-by-step guide to make the game work under GNU/Linux.
Back in 2009, I showed how to install then new-kid-on-the-block PlayOnLinux. Three years is a long time, right? Things have changed since, for one PlayOnLinux is now part of the repository of many GNU/Linux distros and flavours today.
But not every repository carries the latest version of POL and as a gamer who wants to play smoothly the latest games on the market, it is to our interest that POL is always updated. Here’s how to get your POL installation updated whenever there is a new release.
